This post has been in the making for a while. Our contractor who had been renovating the office/computer room in our house was busy doing a lot of demo work for Sandy victims. Much of that work was clearing debris out of destroyed homes that he had finished completed making over just months prior to the storm. He finally made it back to our house to complete the job for us, which included replacing the knobs on my closet doors.
In the middle photo is a Hurricane Sandy fundraiser relief poster by artist Joe Hodnicki. His company, Sharing the Stoke, rolled out a few different designs to raise money for the relief effort. It's a beautiful work of art, and it spoke to me in a way few pieces have. It was one of those things that I just had to have as soon as I saw it.
Finally, finally I went out and bought frames for the other pieces of art I had lying around. The two on the right side are by Dave Conrey. He used to run an Etsy shop called Beach Cities, but lately he's been writing an art and design blog called Fresh Rag. The piece in the middle is a poster my mom had in her classroom for many years, There's Always Tomorrow by Betsy Cameron. The photographs on the left are my own. You know them from this post about my visit to the beach the day before Sandy hit. I plan on ordering a third photo to go on top.
Have you added anything new to your home lately? What's your favorite photo/wall hanging?
